The Fairest Of All Christmas Gift Guides
(And family, friends, good will, world peace and sherry, goes without saying, yaddah yaddah yaddah…)
Each yeah I am badgered by Santa (mum, boyfriend, boyfriend’s family) as to what I will be writing on my list. Each year I say there isn’t really anything I want, a surprise something sparkling satsuma might be nice but really, it is having everyone together that ticks my Christmas wish list. What an idiot. If you don’t ask, you get a PMT mug, socks disguised as cupcakes and mockolate pennies . Screw you lot, I want pressies, good ones! So elves, feast your festive eyes on this little lot…
Lulu Guinness Shocking Pink Cross Hatched Leather LargeWallet
I desperately need a new purse as mine has recently given up the ghost. A purse with compartments, that’s what I need and if it happens to be pink, fastens with a kiss and is beautifully made by Lulu Guinness then that’s just what it’ll have to be. Lulu’s Large Leather Wallet has space for 9 cards, large pockets and zipped compartment. I need it.
Nails Inc. Pinkie Pink Nail Polish
As demonstrated by my cheeky little Instragram account, I’m a fan of painting, drawing on and decorating my nails. Nails Inc. Pinkie Pink nail polish is pink, sparkly and for a good cause. Any questions?
Zoe and Morgan Eternity Snake Necklace
It’s a Christmas miracle. Somehow I have managed to choose just one item from Zoe and Morgan’s stunning collection. I adore their rings; words, lassos, forget me knots and chicas, what the jewellery represents is almost as beautiful as the design itself. There is simply not a piece I don’t love (want and need) but if pushed, I would ask Santa for the Eternity Snake Necklace. Placed in a heart, worn around the neck, the snake biting its own tail is a symbol of eternity. LOVE.
Lapin and Me Granny Green Baby Lapin Lamp
Its kitsch, cute and he would undoubtedly hate it. But I love it. And our house has some green in it, which is why I chose the Granny Green Bunny. It is the only concession I will make.
Let’s Skinnydip Gold Bling Skull iPhone Case
For £18.00 my iPhone could look like it’s rolled around in P Diddy’s pocket and taken a dip in Jay Z’s jewellery box, just as it should at Christmas. Let’s Skinnydip makes an array of jazzy little numbers for your phone and all of my favourites are dripping in jewels. However the one I’ll be asking Father Christmas for has to be the sublimely ridiculous Gold Skull Case available from River Island.
Lou Rota Tableware
I have a fondness for design that is oh so pretty from a distance yet has a nasty little surprise close up. Lou Rota’s pretty rose decorated tableware is made from the finest bone china and positively crawling with scarab beetles. Perfect. A serving bowl would be the ideal way to start my collection yet at £55 I might have to wait awhile until I have the complete set.
Daniella Draper Personalised Signature Bangle
I love words and the thought of ‘Santa’ choosing something meaningful to be hand stamped into the solid silver bangle warms my cockles. Less so when he suggested, ‘Property of Adrian’, hmmm. However, any other funny, heartfelt or random quote, one of Daniella’s Signature Bangles would be a welcome addition to my stocking.
Secret Gift Subscription
A gift that actually does keep on giving, those clever little Domestic Sluts have teamed up with Bristol based gifty beauties Howkapow to create a gift subscription service. Three months, three cold and miserable post-Christmas months, will be brightened by a monthly delivery of surprise loveliness. Yes please.
I like gin. I really like gin. And Hoxton Gin is one of my absolute favourites and everyone needs a favourite tipple at Christmas, don’t they?
Lucinda Chambers Jubilee Wall Hanging
So, this little beauty is a touch on the pricey side but if I (or Santa…I can dream) had £800 to spend on prettying up a wall, Lucinda Chambers Jubilee is just what I would choose.
So, Santa, you’ve got my list, I’ve been ever so good, so no more bargain bin Karaoke Cliff at Christmas cassettes eh?
